    Rider:

    How long have you been riding? Rode off and on through my childhood, but picked it up seriously about 15 years ago.

    I'd have a hard time getting rid of my first saddle--a Crosby Softride that my butt doesn't really fit in. But it's so lovely. I have kind of a hard time getting rid of tack, even if it's stuff I...

    I have a hard keeper, too. He's always been shiny with great feet, but he can drop weight like no other. He's on great pasture 24/7 (80+ acres that he shares with two other horses) and he still...

    Mine was 16.2 (sticked, with front shoes) when I got him as a 6 y.o. Two years later, my vet looked at him while doing spring shots and said he thought he was taller......so I measured him while...

    LOL I worked at a military academy stable where most of the guys rode in their fatigues. The camo breeches bring back lots of memories!

    Higher Standards! I was an Effax and castile soap devotee for years until I tried Higher Standards. It's magic. Cleans the grubbiest, nastiest stuff without drying, and smells amazing.

    Ok, so I'm a little OCD about the buckle on the reins. Hole on the left, buckle on the right, and yes, this really does drive me bonkers if it's reversed.

    I used to teach at a barn where we...

    I trim the ranch horses and they go about 4 weeks in the summer and 6 in the winter. All barefoot and none of them are sore afterwards, even on the dirt/gravel driveway.

  11. Things you never thought you'd say to your horse

    "You're a TB. Why are your feet so hard?"
    "Stop licking my back!"
    "Put the coffee cup down right now!"
    "OMG your feet are so freaking hard."
    "No, you don't need sunscreen on your nose. Put it...

    So I don't have a trainer.....

    ....but let's not tell my uncle that his cowpony is trained to come when I yell his name and crinkle a peppermint wrapper.

    I have an oddly shaped head and my Uvex fits very well. I don't quite remember which CO model fit me but I think it might have been the GR8. IRH long oval models tend to fit me pretty well if that...

    Yeah, my antenna-flicking horse likes to lick my back when I trim his front feet. Sometimes if I'm trimming another horse he'll alternate between licking me and licking the other horse. Really.

    I was watching the open jumpers at Devon on my smartphone while feeding the horses dinner a few weeks ago. When they sounded the horn for the jumpoff, my ex-racehorse took off whinnying and trotting...

    I have a Uvex helmet that's really well ventilated. It's a dial fit but it's very secure.

    I have my horse at home (which is also work--I'm a ranch hand--although I don't own the property). I ride pretty much every night, usually just one horse but sometimes two. I'm single and have no...

    I knew a lesson horse who was missing a few of his front teeth and his tongue flopped out all the time. He was ridden in a snaffle and loose crank noseband. You could really only see it from the...

    I have a horse who generally isn't super spooky, but when he does spook he completely ignores your leg and spins left. He will completely ignore a spur and used to have a meltdown with crops/whips. ...

    See, I'm actually really happy to let other people ride my horse as long as a) they wear a helmet and b) they can do w/t/c decently. I have a well-behaved horse and I love seeing other people enjoy...

    My gelding used to turn himself out after he was done eating. Unlatch the stall door and walk sedately down to his paddock. Even if he was assigned to a different stall or paddock it only took him...

    I learned how to wrap and care for legs working at a barn with a healthy polo program. We also did a lot of cross training with the polo ponies--most of them did lessons and jumped. Cross training...
